Solidarity Appeal: Support the Berlin hospital strike

For twenty-six days, nurses at the two largest public Berlin hospital chains, Charité and Vivantes, and the technical staff of the latter, have been on strike. More than 2,000 workers have joined the trade union ver.di since the beginning of the campaign earlier this year which led up to the strikes. The strikers are increasingly frustrated – not least because the governing parties in Berlin – Social Democrats, Greens and the Left Party – all support them in words but do not use their power (the clinics are owned by the city) to instruct management to accept the more than justified demands of the workers and their trade union.
